Egypt after the revolution

Egypt has just held the first free and democratic presidential election of its history. The run-off will take place mid-June. A few days before this historic vote, France 24 went to meet Egyptian voters.

Has the revolution achieved its goals? What challenges will the new president face? With a new chapter of Egyptian history about to be written, our reporters Willy Bracciano and Khalil Béchir went to meet the population shortly before polling day.

The result of these elections will be crucial for the future direction of the Arab world's most populous country. Currently, it appears torn between the temptation of voting for Islamist candidates and ones who promise normality, paradoxically embodied by figures from the Mubarak era.

Some thought the departure of Hosni Mubarak over a year ago would resolve everything. And yet every day there are new protests against the ruling military council who run the country. Every day, the population is calling for solutions to the problems of everyday life, to the economic crisis, to unemployment and to corruption.

Meanwhile, many are wondering about the successes and failures of the revolution. Fifteen months after the first protests on Tahrir Square, we take you to the heart of Egyptian society. We travel to Cairo, to Suez -- the birthplace of the revolution -- and to Luxor, one of the main tourist sites affected by the upheaval.
